Rectify, SundanceTV's first scripted show and breakout hit, will end this fall with its fourth season, the network announced Friday. The cult hit, a 2015 Peabody Award winner, stars Aden Young as Daniel Holden, a man released from prison after serving nearly 20 years on death row.
"There is no perfect 'end' for this story nor for these characters," series creator Ray McKinnon said in a statement. "They will continue to live on. We just won't document them any longer. And the timing of this 'non-end' end feels exactly right. SundanceTV has been a dream to work with on this journey; I am so grateful to have been allowed the freedom to tell the tale I wanted to tell in the way I felt it should be told with the mad and beautiful collaborators who joined me on the ride."
No word on how the series might conclude, but AMC Networks President and General Manager Charlie Collier teased a potential whopper of an ending. "We're looking forward to giving Rectify the send-off it deserves," he said.
